Chapter three begins by outlining the project’s design, in order to ground the data in research practices, and introduce the participants and their demographics. The chapter then highlights a striking commonality amongst participants – insecurity in relation to gender. This could manifest as an internal uncertainty in being ‘trans enough’, or anxiety over not being seen as trans enough by other people. This chapter explores this phenomenon, whilst considering how hegemonic gendered expectations impact not only the ability to socially exert, but also the ability to internally formulate a non-binary gender identity.
